Low country has the best pulled pork dinner anywhere. We love to stop in here and see Mike and his crew. Always greeted with a smile, great service and great beer. If they have tomato pie, you HAVE to try that! It's the best and you can tell because it sells out quickly. One of the best places McDowell County... More

The pulled pork tastes like vinegar and not like pork at all. Nothing like actual low country pulled pork. I guess it comes down to personal taste, and thus just didn't do it for me.

I visited the restaurant while working in Marion with a local friend who had never been there. I have the best pork chop I have ever had, juicy and served with a red wine vinaigrette and blue cheese (or maybe it was gorgonzola) The macaroni and cheese was not the typical southern yellow kind, but the way I remember my...

Our hotel listed them as a local restaurant and they had good reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived at 8:15pm believing the restaurant closed at 9pm. Upon arrival we learned they really closed at 8:30pm. Geanna and Tess... More

My family and I dined here this evening. We thought they closed at 9, but they close at 8:30. We arrived at 8:20. We immediately apologized for arriving so late but they welcomed us warmly. Jeanna and Tess treated us like guests in their home. Mike the owner was there and he was also very friendly. If you want to... More

Passing through and chose this place due to TA reviews. Seafood combo was swai and shrimp and was perfectly seasoned and breaded and fried. Not greasy. Baked new potatoes. Green beans (did not taste like a can). Attentive service. Waitress was enthusiastically knowledgeable about menu items. Will come back here if in town again.
